Walks and Rides

The footpaths and bridleways in the area surrounding the Littletons offer a variety of different walking experiences. The relatively flat land around the villages, and to the east, have paths going through growing and farming country. To the west of the Cleeve Road (B4085) the land rises onto Cleeve Hill, giving views over the Vale of Evesham, Bredon Hill, The Malvern and Shropshire Hills . Cleeve Hill is a Nature Conservation Area where wild flowers and butterflies abound. By taking the steep path (519) down the western side of the hill you meet the beautiful river Avon, giving a lovely riverside walk.

The area offers scope for short strolls and dog walks, but also makes a starting point for more ambitious walks further afield. It is easy to walk to neighbouring Cleeve Prior and its Pub, The Kings Arms. If you don’t fancy returning by foot, the 247 bus route offers an alternative means of transport (see timetable on the local transport page). The path along the river is part of the Shakespeare's Avon Way. This is an 88 mile long footpath following the river from its source in Naseby to its confluence with the river Severn in Tewkesbury. Another type of walk would be a walk through history following the routes taken by armies in the civil war.
